Core Programs and Electives

Primary Core & Electives Program

Discovery of Learning's Primary Core & Electives Program consists of combination classes where children are grouped together with children in at least 2 similar grade levels. The Core & Electives Program focuses on Mathematics, Language Arts, History and Science. Children receive a minimum of 6 electives per year! Electives vary by campus with some offering electives as part of the core day and others offering a separate elective day. Children learn through a variety of activities that:

  • Are grade appropriate
  • Are project-based with opportunities to be child-led
  • Use differentiated instruction with a hands-on approach
  • Incorporate the arts and music
  • Involve playing games and other cooperative opportunities
  • Use a variety of enriching materials
  • May take place indoors or outside
  • Consider the whole child, giving emotional health the same importance as academics
  • Collaborate with teachers and peers in a way that makes learning personalized and fun!
